hello everyone,

       just purchased a 2014 retro 155. this is our first trailer and we’re totally green. we’ve been eying this model for awhile.  Im towing it with a 2000 tundra, and will definitely be needing to do a lift kit on the trailer just to get it in the driveway. already had to get a 5 inch drop for the hitch, and may have to go to a 7 inch. Looking forward to figuring this thing out. have the manual, but there are no illustrations and it is very vague.

I put a 3 inch lift on mine, I had a shop do it. You can see it here. https://whitewaterretro.com/forum/retro-upgrades/riverside-rv-white-water-retro-custom-lift-3/

Thanks! ended up having it lifted with the factory kit. Also switched to 15″ wheels with radials from eTrailer. The original hubcaps fit the new wheels no problem.

I just got a XL155 and need a lift kit too.The Dealer vaguely mentioned a 4″ Lippert, but I’m wondering if that’s too high because I can only find a 2″ kit

I just noticed Ardnity’s post…it seems you answered my question about going higher than 2 “.I’m pulling it with a Toyota Highlander so don’t want it to get away from me! I’m trying to take it on it’s Maiden Voyage on the 4thof July and I’m running out of time. I guess e trailer will be what I’ll try. I didn’t see 3” though…arrgh! My husband just shakes his head at me, I’m ready to sell it instead!
